A while back the scene had seen the return of well known PSP hacker Davee when he released a tool called RopTool that could aid in ARM CPU hacking. The developer has now released a native exploit through Webkit that in its initial release only ran on firmware 2.60. The developer has now promptly updated the exploit to run on all firmwares [break].[/break]up to 3.18. So if you updated to firmware 3.30 you are out of luck. The developer via his blog also gives credit where credit is due and mentions that the driving force behind this exploit comes from developers BBalling1, Josh_Axey and Archaemic.


You can test the vulnerability on your Vita by visiting the link provided below and when executed correctly you should be met with a message that reads "Congrats, this vita is vulnerable". On some firmware versions it is reported that anything but error codes such as error: 1, error: 2, error: 3 is a good sign that the exploit is working. For example when the browser page hangs for a few seconds then refreshes. Developer BBalling1, aka Codelion, has also released his version of the exploit for firmware 3.18 which requires netcat. More about that can be found on his github page which is also quoted below.
